Iroorance That'i All. j
The chairman of the committee will ap
point the executive committee, and It In
turn will name the temporary chairman of
next year's state convention. The tem
porary chairman will be made permanent
chairman and will appoint the committee
on resolutions. The La Follette men
charge that there Is a purpose to make
the resolutions favorable to Taft. and also
to keep out of the platform any endorse
ment of the Initiative nd referendum, so
that straight party ballots will not be
counted for it Lincoln Star.
This would be interesting If it mere
not so palpably a display of ignorance.
Under our new primary election sys
tem the state committee is purely a
campaign committee cbarged with the
management of the canvass for the
candidates on the party ticket, and
the work of party organization. Next
year's platform conventions will have
no opportunity whatever to favor any
one for president, because these con
ventions will not meet until the end of
July, whereas the presidential tickets
will all be In the field a month before,
and in Nebraska the presidential pref
erence vote will have been taken in
April preceding. Neither will the plat
form resolutions have any power to
make straight party ballots count for
or against the initiative and referen
dum, for that, too, will have been long
before determined in the April pri
mary, in which the rank and file will
indicate the only approval tr disap
proval that can count for that purpose.
Folk Press-Clipping Bureau.
Former Governor Joseph W. Folk of
Missouri, one of the three democratic
presidential candidates from that
state, is resorting to the press-enp-plng
bureau for the purposes of
his campaign. His managers have
put out a large circular sntitled
Recent Press Notes of Joseph W.
Folk; Some of the Newspaper Com
ments on Mlssourian Who May Be
Democratic Choice for President." The
notes consist of editorial clippings
from papers published in Missouri,
Oklahoma, Michigan, Montana, Penn
sylvania, all favorable, of course, to
Mr. Folk and his candidacy.
While Mr. Folk's candidacy does
not now look formidable, his method
s quite Interesting and may attract
some support to him.' It at least shows
that Mr. Folk and his friends are not
preparing to stand aside for either
Champ Clark or David R. Francis,
Missouri's other two candidates. Mis
souri democrats pledged themselves to
Folk In atate convention a year ago,
before Champ Clark or Dave Francis
was In the ring and before the acci
dent happened by which Clark was
elevated to the speakership, where he
might command serious attention as a
presidential possibility.
Whether the Missouri democrats
would commit themselves to Folk to
day were they to hold a state conven
tion Is uncertain, but it does not mat
ter, so. far as the formal endorsement
goes. If Francis gets Into the fight
with his old-time vigor, it will be
hard for the old guard to follow be
hind a Folk bandwagon- So far as
Clark Is concerned, whatever nucleus
of support he gets from his state is
likely to out Into Folk, for they have
both been playing, more or less, to
the same galleries.
A Good Example, Anyway.
Those ministers who declined to
... ...a J Mt -
marry a muui-miiiionaire divorcee
to a girl young enough to be his daugh
ter, even for an excessive fee, cannot
hope to prevent the match, but they
have at least set an example, the moral
effect of which surely will not be en
tirely lost. The clergyman who does
perform the ceremony cannot help but
appear to a disadvantage by contrast
with his brethren who refused, despite
the tempting size of the fee.
It is all very well for the church
and Its votaries to preach the sanctity
of matrimony and the purity of the
family altar, but their duty does not
end there. To put preachment Into
practice, they must have the courage
of their convictions, which these minis
ters display in rejecting the proffer of
$1,000 to do something which they
vigorously condemn aa wrong. They
cannot escape their responsibility in
this connection. Neither can they
wield influence worth while so long as
they attempt to escape it.
The world has a right to demand
leadership of those who stand as moral
teachers and If they fail then they can
not expect much in the way of follow
lng their precepts. The increasing
evil of the sanctioned divorce Is far too
large a problem to be solved with any
half-hearted, or dispirited effort. It
cannot be overcome by being winked
at and connived In.
The Power of Song. 1
Failing fifteen times in seven years
to swim the English channel, William
T. Burgees triumphs on the sixteenth
attempt. It Is the first time in thirty
six years, since tbe achievement of
Captain Mathew Webb, that the feat
has been accomplished. It tested all
the swimmer's strength, skill and en
durance and then It seems he would
have failed but for the ringing cheer
of his pilots' singing from the motor
boat alongside. Twice the swimmer
became sick at sea, once almost de
lirious and fain would quit, "but my
pilots began to sing and this gave me
fresh courage to persevere." '
The other night when . the Hon.
Hackensmldt, on the eve of his pro
fessional engagement with the es
teemed Mr, Gotch, found sleep impos
sible and rest difficult, his trainers
employed a large, genial German to
sit In his room and sing national airs
dear to Hack. That was once when
the magic of music failed, but the In
stance goes to show what charm and
power dwell tn quickening song. His
tory has rhapsodized over it. Many a
flagging army has been fired with new
vim by some Inspiring strain from the
regimental band and gone into battle
to conquer Instead of lose. The
"Spirit of is the spirit of the mili
tant martial air. The songs and drum
beats on msny a civil war battlefield
helped win the day.
But here Is a new test of this music
magic, in the realm of athletic en
deavor. Perhaps the story of the
Battle of Reno might have been differ
ent had the army of General Jeffries
resorted to phonograph records to
cheer the heart of the white man's de
spairing hope. What stupendous de
tail In the destiny of mankind hung
on the swimming of the, English chan
nel, we know not, but whatever it was,
it has been perfected through the mys
tic instrumentality of magic rhythm,
and now the course of human destiny
may run along to its end unobstructed
The Democratic Distress.
Our amiable democratic contempor
ary, the World-Herald, seems to be
terribly distressed for fear "weak
kneed republican progressives may re
fuse to exert themselves to prevent the
renominatlon of President Taft because
convinced that they would be fighting'
the inevitable. This course, that dis
interested sheet tells us, would proceed
on the "lazy and cowardly theory"
that it is impossible to prevent his re
nomination, and It tries to inspire
"genuine progressives' to come out
against Mr. Taft openly and defiantly
by showing them What a weak candi
date he will make, arid how certain he
will be to lead the party to defeat.
This appeal is not worthy even of
the World-Herald's reputation for
political fox-craft, for If that organ
had the slightest confidence in its
own representations on this score,
namely, that Mr. Taft's renominatlon
assured democratic success, It would
be urging republicans to stay with
their president lest some other and
stronger standard bearer might head
the republican ticket to the detriment
of democratic chances. The World
Herald is solicitous about the "weak
kneed progressive republicans" only
for the purpose of using them in boost
ing the democratic game.
Local democrats must Indeed be In
hard lines when they have to dig up a
apolitical grafter like Van Alstlne to
head the uprising against nominees on
the republican ticket. Van Alstlne has
this time convened himself as a club
and passed a resolution exactly 120
Strong, which is modesty Itself for him,
since he has been known to offer votes
by the thousand for the proper con
sideration. What we advise our demo
cratic friends to do when bargaining
with Van is to make the reward condi
tional on delivery of the goods.
Both the democratic state commit
tee and the democratic state club have
retained Dr. P. L. Hall aa treasurer.
But if former democratic practice is
pursued he will only be apprised of
the fact when asked to subscribe his
name to a sworn report of campaign
receipts and expenditures handled ex
clusively by the democratic machine
An accommodating federal Judge
has again enjoined the South Dakota
Railroad commission from enforcing
the reduced rate schedule enacted
by the last legislature. If South
Dakota is up against a railroad
rate fight, it can learn a lot about
what to do, and what not to do, from
Nebraska's experience.
The ostensible purpose of the pro
posed organization of former law
makers In Nebraska Is to influence
legislation. If there lawmakers could
not turn the trick themselves while
they were on the Job, how do they ex
pect to make their successors do what
they failed to do?
And now it is said that the doctors
made a mistake in diagnosing all those
cases at Lincoln as typhoid. Better put
that into the brief as argument why
the money devoted by Nebraska to
medical education should be spent at
Lincoln rather than at Omaha.

The most brilliant social event of the
season was the reception given this even

N. H. Patrick for Colonel Matt Patrick
and his bride on their return from the east.
Nearly 6-0 Invitations had been Issued,
and. In anticipation of full dress. Omaha's

elaborate preparations to do Justice to
themselves. In the parlors Mr. and Mrs.
J. N. H. Patrick, assisted by their eon,
Robert, received the rapidly Increasing ar

Colonel Patrick and his bride. It seemed
as if all Omaha's best society must have
postponed every other engagement to do
honor to the occasion. In the Intermission
between the music by the Ninth Infantry
band there were a number of brilliant dis

began at 8 o'clock and lasted until I

The Commission Plan
Editorial Com meat ea Deere
of Omaha oer tor the New
Form of t'ltr norernment.
Bark to Bryanlsmf
St. Louis Globe-Democrat,
Omaha has adopted the commission plan
of government, the Initiative, the referen
dum and the recall, all at one dose. The
democratic foes of Mr. Bryan having been
running the city government of Omaha for
a1 few years past, this violent reaction Is
perhaps only what should be expected.
Battle Only Half Woo.
Sioux City Tribune.
Omaha people must understand, of eoure.
that the battle for better city government
is only half won. The commission form of
government merely makes efficient eco
nomical and honest administration of city
affairs possible. The indictment a gainst the
old plan, upon which It has been tried
and condemned in so many places, Is that
It would not work well no matter how good
the men chosen to administer it. But to
make the new plan work well It Is vital
that efficient and honest mem be chosen
as city commissioners. That IS the problem
which the people of Omaha now have to
face. i
Xw rtem In La rare Cities.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican.
Omaha now has a population oC 12S.0W.
and the considerable size of the city will
make the experiment of the commission
form of government quite aa Instructive
as In any of the other cities that have
adopted It. It has been often said that
the smaller cities were peculiarly adapted
to commission administration, and it Is
well that as many places of over 100,000 as
possible should be Included in the length
ening list of cities now trying the new
system. Five years hehce should see a
general harvesting of conclusions concern
ing the departure that will be valuable
and perhaps conclusive. -
Tbe Test to Come.
St. Louis Republic.
We may be sure that if this simpler and
more direct means of managing a city
proves successful In Omaha It will be at
tempted In still larger fields. With a pop
ulation of 124,000. Omaha fairly represents
many metropolitan conditions. Its prob
lems and difficulties have been those com
mon to the greater municipalities. The
commission form of government Is the only
substitute which these times have tried
for the conventional form. Several smaller
towns have lately adopted It, and some
have rejected It. That Important towns
are disposed to give It a larger experi
ment speaks significantly In Its favor.
1 l
Joins Beform Pi-oceaalon.
Des Moines Register and Leader.
But it may be said of the commission
plan, as Beecher onoe said of good clothes,
"a fine coat will not make a fine man,
but It will help his appearance." Omaha
has joined an eminently respectable proces
sion of reform cities and while merely get
ting Into the coat of reform will not work
any Internal changes It will help outelde
appearances. It Is also to be said for the
commission plan, that once adopted It af
fords the opportunity for a reform wave
whenever the city Is moved by the right
impulse, and once the Des Moines plan is
In operation, Omaha may wake up most
unexpectedly to the enormities of bad gov
ernment and taking the bit In Its teeth
move up to the head of the line.
Unconcerned Voter.
Chicago Tribune.
Last week there was a special election In
Omaha to decide whether the city should
be. governed under the commission plan.
One would imagine that the proposal to
revolutionize the municipal government
would have brought an unusual number of
voters to the polls. The commission plan
has been so widely discussed during recent
years that few who read the papers could
have been in the dark about the question
to be voted on or unaware of its Im
portance. Yet of the 17.000 registered vot
ers only 7.688 marked their ballots. Of
these 5,31, or less than one-third of the
total electorate, voted for the plan and
carried It If there had been a tinge of
politics in the election, If It had been a
question as to which man should ' fill a
particular office, there would have been
a much heavier vote. An Important meas
ure, a question of public policy, a pro
posed radical change In the form of local
government, Interested less than half the
legal voters. The paaslve majority allowed
the question to be settled for it by an In
telligent progressive minority.
How to End the "Appalling: Depreda
tions of tbe Traats."
Brooklyn Eagle.
As the official organ of the party, the
Commoner recommends that a radical
measure for the relief of tbe public be
passed at the next session of congress.
This because of the "appalling depreda
tions of tbe trusts."
There Is a sure cure. A step in its direc
tion was taken when it was proposed that
guilt be assumed and that offenders be
compelled to prove their Innocence, thus
simplifying matters for the prosecution.
Let the next anti-trust law provide for
that Let the statute be drawn so that the
authorities may rest their case upon an
allegation and let every Judge who fails
to dlreot conviction be recalled.
Finally, let there be no fear as an al
ternative to Imprisonment and the people
will be happy. What la worth doing at all
Is worth doing well. '
